This paper describes a collaborative research project on Visible Light Communications for
lighting infrastructures. It is being developed by the Integrated Circuits and Mobile Network
groups in Instituto de Telecomunicações, Aveiro site, and expects to deliver a VLC
demonstrator transmitting video and data in real­time by the end of 2016. Another main
goal is to develop this system to be modular in order to enable collaboration with other
groups with interest in this field, offering the academic community a real­time test bed to
evaluate the performance of different modules, algorithms and optical front­ends, which is
currently not available.
